Premium Snacks Nordic switches to biogas
Swedish snacks producer Premium Snacks Nordic AB (previously known as Rootfruit Scandinavia AB) has taken the next step in reducing the company's climate impact resulting from its production process – switching to biogas as fuel for process heat at its production facility in Laholm.
Founded in 2007, the company is a producer of premium potato crisps and similar tuber vegetable snacks. The company operates a production facility in Laholm that produces around 5 000 tonnes per annum of snacks using locally-produced potatoes, parsnips, and beetroot.
According to a statement, as of January 2021, process heat for the production will be powered by biogas. The plant already uses 100 percent renewable electricity. This means that the manufacturing facility has achieved an important sustainability goal – to operate fossil-free snack production in Laholm.
